A local council was forced to shut down some of the public toilets in its area following a spate of vandalism, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The East Lindsey District Council has taken the decision to temporarily close the toilets in Tower Gardens, Skegness, but they will be reviewed ahead of the summer season. However, the council has assured the toilets will be opened for any events taking place in the town.
James Gilbert, spokesman for East Lindsey District Council said; “It has been an ongoing issue over quite some time. The council has now reluctantly decided to temporarily close the toilets after frequent issues.
“It was a last resort but the council had no other alternative. The council can not keep throwing money after these acts by mindless fools.”
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly something local authorities should consider, especially when faced with vandalism, and that’s exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts its experience to good work.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
